Career Advice You Need RN, Based on Your Zodiac Sign

After you’ve tossed your cap and hung up your gown, you know there’s a whole new chapter on the horizon, but the details could feel a bit hazy. And because you’re bound to have tons of Qs about post-grad life, you might be hoping the planets can offer a bit of astrological insight into what’s to come. Whether it’s time to push to turn that internship into a full-time opportunity or build your brand, here’s what the sky has to say on career moves for every zodiac sign. (If you know your rising sign/ascendant, you're going to want to take that in, too.)

ARIES (Mar. 21–Apr. 19)
You’ll be feeling like the world is yours for the taking come early September, thanks to a pair-up between the confident sun in your daily routine zone and Jupiter, the planet of fortune, in your career zone. Take advantage by sending out resumes galore and setting Zoom conferences with contacts—your self-assuredness could land you a dream op! And from December to May 2021, lucky Jupiter, which amplifies anything it touches, fires up your networking zone, making this a brilliant time to join a winning team. Whether you’re brainstorming alongside your colleagues or diving into a collaborative long-term project, feeling like you’re a part of something bigger than yourself lays the groundwork for success. 
 
TAURUS (Apr. 20-May 20)
Juggling your personal life and professional pursuits can have you feeling totally swamped from early August to early September while your ruling planet, social Venus is in your communication zone. But you never know who could turn out to be a helpful networking contact, so keep putting yourself out there. And chances are that since the end of last year especially, you’ve been swamped with opportunities to learn and grow, expanding your skill set, philosophizing and dreaming of your big picture, long-term plans, thanks to expansive Jupiter in your higher learning zone. But from this December to May 2021, the fortunate planet moves into your career zone, bringing opportunities to step into the spotlight and shine. Get ready to step into your personal power and be recognized for your hard work. And when it’s time to go out into the world, don’t forget to moisturize before putting on your protective face covering or mask. This facial moisturizer from Neutrogena protects the skin barrier to help prevent ‘maskne,’ so safety and healthy skin can coexist.

GEMINI (May 21–June 20)
As your ruling planet, messenger Mercury, shifts out of your money zone and into your communication zone from early to late August, any professional ideas you’ve been musing about or working on can turn into productive conversations with friends, colleagues, and possible higher-ups. Researching new ways to step up your earning potential comes naturally, too! Then, after a year in your deep emotional transformation zone, expansive Jupiter shifts into your higher learning zone from this December to May 2021, turning your attention to continuing education and long-distance travel (at least planning for it). If getting out of your comfort zone in order to expand your horizons feels right, it could usher in a thrilling new phase.

 
CANCER (June 21–July 22)

The confident sun moves through your money zone from mid-July to mid-August, making this a brilliant time to explore new ways to boost cash flow and put your skills to work for you. If you see a job op that sounds right up your alley, taking a proactive approach by networking and sending over your portfolio can feel totally empowering. And from early September to mid-November, action-oriented Mars will be retrograde in your career zone, which sounds daunting, but there’s no need to panic. This period is more about trusting the process and doing your own personal best versus comparing yourself to other candidates. Once it moves forward, from mid-November to early January,  it’ll bring unparalleled go-getter energy to your hustle! 

 
LEO (July 23–Aug. 22)
As if you didn’t already shine like a total star, Leo SZN will hit from mid-July to mid-August. Your ruler, the confident sun, moves through your self-image zone, making this your annual moment to zero in on whatever fires you up inside and make your voice (aka roar) heard, whether that means documenting your hustle on TikTok (after doing your fave face mask obv) or entertaining networking contacts over virtual happy hours. And from December to May 2021, the planet of fortune and expansion, Jupiter, moves through your partnership zone. You could find that by pairing up with a friend, former colleague, or even S.O.—even if that simply means bouncing brilliant ideas back and forth and serving as one another’s grounding support system—you could enjoy even more success.
 
VIRGO (Aug. 23–Sept. 22)
Coming off of this summer’s messenger Mercury retrograde in your networking zone, you’ve likely had eyebrow-raising interactions with friends and contacts from the past. Thankfully, it’s time to look forward, and as your ruling planet, Mercury moves through your sign from mid-August to early September, you’ll be getting clear on how you want to present yourself out in the world and who you want to take along for the ride. Your usual heavy-duty research and hard work can set up a dream come true. And then from December to May 2021, lucky Jupiter moves through your daily routine zone, filling your schedule up with opportunities galore. Your biggest challenge might be figuring out small, but effective ways to squeeze in self-care and bolster your work-life balance! 

 
LIBRA (Sept. 23–Oct. 22)
As the confident sun shifts into your networking zone from mid-July to mid-August, you could find that convo in which you divulge your big picture dreams to a former classmate or contact from that exciting internship could lead to an exciting job op. You’ll want to put your best face forward for that video interview, so be sure to add quality, fast-acting products like this energizing  face wash, to your morning routine (psst the MicroClear® patented technology is proven to cut through oil quickly to speed acne medicine straight to the source of breakouts!!). And from December to May 2021, the planet of fortune and expansion, Jupiter, moves through your self-expression, fun, and romance zone. The huge planet will magnify your desire to make your voice heard and feel like you have your fill of creativity and pleasure, making this the perfect time to get super-creative and inventive, even pitch that passion project. If you follow your heart, you’ll be right on track. 
 
SCORPIO (Oct. 23–Nov. 21)
While the confident sun moves through your career zone from mid-July to mid-August, your optimism and magnetism are sure to be on another level. Given your razor-sharp vision, there’s no doubt you’ll be focusing on your ultimate goals and the specific steps you want to take to get there. That’s bound to set you up for a win, but you’ll do well to make a little room for magic and spontaneity, as well. And from early September to mid-November, your co-ruling planet, action-oriented Mars, will be retrograde in your daily routine zone, which might sound like a pain, but it’s actually an opportunity to prioritize and figure out what you really want to pour your energy and passion into. Once it moves forward, from mid-November to early January,  you’ll be prepared to take on just about anything and everything that lights you up inside.

 
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22–Dec. 21)
While the confident sun moves through your higher learning zone from mid-July to mid-August, you’ll be pumped to add even more amazing talents to your resume. Taking an online class or diving into books you’ve been meaning to read can get your wheels turning and have you feeling super-inspired and ready to showcase your skills. You’ve also likely been brainstorming a ton of ways to bring in extra cash or negotiate for a higher salary from that first big job, but it might be tough to see actual results, as fortunate Jupiter has been retrograde in your money zone since May. But keep writing down all your strategies and get the ball rolling in September, as that’s when the expansive planet moves forward, amplifying your optimism and earning luck until December. 
 
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22–Jan. 19)
You’ve likely been honing your personal brand and career focus, but in a very internal way, as fortunate Jupiter has been retrograde in your sign and self-image zone since May. But continue to reflect and dream, because from September to mid-December, the expansive planet moves forward, and you’ll get the green light to put yourself out there in new ways (think starting a podcast or launching a website that showcases your skillset). Then, from mid-December to May 2021, the planet of fortune and expansion, Jupiter, moves through your money zone. The huge planet will bump up your opportunities to bring in hard-earned cash, potentially in a variety of ways. Having faith in yourself and your hustle is the first step toward seeing perhaps even some of your wildest career goals become a reality. 
                                            
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20–Feb. 18)
It’s possible you’ve been perfecting and keeping your long-term dreams, goals, and big picture ideas to yourself for the most part, especially since May, as the planet of fortune has been retrograde in your spirituality zone. But from September to mid-December, the expansive planet moves forward again, making you feel like you can start sharing and planning for the next step in a more action-oriented way. This is a key time to plant seeds you want to see flourish, as Jupiter will move through your sign and self-image zone from mid-December to May 2021, amplifying your fortune and offering you a special chance to grow personally and professionally. When it comes to building your personal brand and acting on your most inventive ideas, it’s full steam ahead!
 
PISCES (Feb. 19–Mar. 20)
While the self-assured sun moves through your daily routine zone from mid-July to mid-August, random gigs and internships could fill your schedule. While they might not be your end game, the experiences could serve to boost your confidence. From early September to mid-November, action-oriented Mars will be retrograde in your money zone, which might sound like a total drag, but it’s actually a chance to figure out how you can best juggle your hustle and personal needs (think schedule self-care moments, like taking baths, using a foaming  pink grapefruit scrub or DIY pedicure). Finding ways to strike a balance between these two pursuits can have you feeling more focused. Once the go-getter planet moves forward in your cash zone from mid-November to early January. Then, you can bring a renewed energy and new and improved vision to your professional game, and you’ll be feeling unstoppable.
